Todays Tomato Harvest

Todays Tomato Harvest

It’s that special time of the year when the tomatoes start ripening up and producing all kinds of luscious fruits for our consumption. Here is what I picked today.

The top box of cucumbers and tomatoes was actually from yesterday but all the rest came out this afternoon. A couple of the tomatoes have some damage from irregular water, oddly enough, from too much water rather than not enough this year. I haven’t counted them yet but will do so tomorrow and add it to the vegetable count. I’m a couple days behind on posting to the list but I have kept track of our bounty with a handy note in the kitchen. Today’s vegetables consisted of cucumbers, yellow pear tomatoes (a slew of them), cherry tomatoes, slicing tomatoes (I’ll have to check which kinds), and some crazy looking giant tomatoes. It’s a pretty good haul, we’re going to have to start canning and freezing soon!

  1. Dave, that is a fantastic haul of tomatoes. So far I have had just a handful of cherry tomatoes, though there are plenty of green tomatoes on the vines.

  2. Oh mater me!! Just look at those beauts!! I'll be havin some here before too long. I have a recipe for tomato wine if you're interested. ;~)

  3. Dave- now you need to can it all and make wonderful sauces and soups for next year. Mine have yet to ripen so I thoroughly enjoy seeing yours!~

  4. OH, that's quite lovely. What are you going to make first? I'm planning on jars of tomato soup for delicious winter meals with my first tomatoes. That's the one thing we ate up from last year. I still have some homecanned tomatoes left.

  5. They look great!

  6. Great haul Dave. Good eating too.

  7. Thanks all! It's more than we can eat in one weekend for sure. I think spaghetti sauce will be one of the first things we make. We've already have a couple BLTs, and I love tomatoes on turkey sandwiches! YUM!

    I always like having extra to give away.

  8. I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
